Since the last time I wrote, stores have come and gone around this theater, with the nearby Costco location now a flooring store. This theater needs a remodeling job.

And that was more than 30 years ago, back when the theater had six screens and two of them showed 70mm projection and six track Dolby Stereo.

I used to go to this theater all the time. I even worked at their snack bar in the mid ‘80s. Flooding was an issue even back then. I remember swimming across a flooded parking lot to see “Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom”. No joke. Anyone who worked at Loews is welcome to join our facebook group. Please click on

First movie I saw there “48 Hours” in 82 when the theater opened. Been going there for 30 years, can’t say it’s a good experience however. Theater run by people with no feel for a “movie theater experience”, the theaters are now dank and depressing and theaters 5-8 are the WORST. But it seems every time I go there I get one of those theaters which is why I patron other theaters and not this one so much.

Last month, the theater turned 30 without any fanfare. In recent years, this theater has shown a lot of Indian and foreign films to cater the rapidly growing audience who crave them the most. Maybe in the next 30 or so years it should need an upgrade like other Loews/Sony houses.

This year will mark 15+ years since the last time the theater’s exterior was renovated and new screens were added. Later this year the theater will turn 30, pretty impressive given that the Valleyview cinemas are no longer open. This theater and the Clearview cinemas are still thriving, especially Clearview because of their free movie tuesday program.

Theatre’s closed until monday due to flooding as well as the nearby mall. Route 23 is a disaster. The Clearview is the only cinema that’s open in wayne.

Flooding will be an issue again near this theater.

I agree. This theater was the first theater that I experienced SDDS with Batman Forever. It was 5.1. Even some of the trailers were surround sound. It sounded pretty good and loud. Some of the largest screens in the theater were equipped with 8 channel SDDS, yet there were fewer movies that were released in that format that I experienced, such as Godzilla, which was the last 8 channel movie that I heard in this theater before AMC took over Loews and replaced the Dolby SR, SDDS, and DTS-Stereo and DTS 5.1 into Dolby Digital 5.1 and EX surround sound formats, and then PCM uncompressed audio with the installation of digital 4k projection.

Security was, and is still terrible. I had a car stolen from the parking lot about ten years ago. Very poor lighting there.

moviebuff82 on January 11, 2011 at 11:39 am

I agree. I have been there when it was a few years old and it was ok. As time progressed, the seats became crummy and the floor sticky. The sound system became glitchy and prices went up. Security is not that good at this theater. Parking can be a hassle. Thankfully there are better theatres around this one, all with stadium seating, digital IMAX, and better crowds. They need to rebuild Wayne as a 14-screen stadium seating theater like what they did to Danbury.

Place needs a renovation after almost thirty years

Travis Reid is now head of Screenvision, which used to serve advertising for this theater before AMC used National Cinemedia for all of its theaters, as the company plans to convert pre-show ads to digital.

moviebuff82 on October 16, 2010 at 2:02 pm

2 of them in 3D. Jackass is playing in 2D at this theater, alongside the 3D version.

Hopefully it will. Two upcoming events are coming according to the fandango site…Beauty and the Beast Sing A Long, on tuesday September 29th, then Exorcist Director’s Cut event the next day which will be the Version You’ve Never Seen shown digitally plus never-before-seen making of footage which will appear on the bluray when that film is released for the first time on that format. As of today, this theater is the longest-lived Loews theater in northern New Jersey.

Curious whether the closure of Clearview’s Cinema 23 in Verona, and AMC’s renovation of the Essex Green in West Orange will boost business here.
